We provide weekly home-delivery of meals to seniors who are assessed to be “homebound”, therefore cannot attend a congregate nutrition site, they are unable to shop and prepare food for themselves and they have no reliable support. The goal of this program is to provide a support service to enable senior adults to remain independent in their own homes. Eligibility for home delivered meal services are assessed by a county case worker. For more information about this service or to sign up for this program, please call Just1Call at 704-432-1111.
A short term (up to 12 weeks) home delivered meal option is also available for those seniors recovering from hospitalization or rehabilitation and meet the homebound meal service eligibility as described above. For more information or to sign up for this program, please call our office at 704-336-3144.
